To begin with, It has been used in the extraction of gold from ore for over a century. Today it is still considered the most efficient extraction method – with sodium cyanide used in the leaching process in most gold mining operations.
Secondly, We are one of the largest producers of sodium cyanide for the mining industry. Ammonia and caustic soda are the key raw materials use in the production of this chemical.
Thirdly, Solid sodium cyanide is produce to form a white crystalline briquette or ‘cyanoid’. These briquettes are highly soluble and can be delivered to customers using our designed Sparge system, or in flexible intermediate bulk containers (FIBCs).
Fourthly, Liquid cyanide is deliver to mine sites via purpose-built isotanks that are suitable for road or rail transport.
Lastly, To ensure the safety of our customers, we offer a 24/7 emergency response capability, plus technical advice and awareness programs in the safe use and handling of cyanide on mine sites. We are a signatory to the International Cyanide Management Code and our sodium cyanide manufacturing facility and transfer stations are fully ICMC accredit.
